Do you lose the ring?

When you get further in your pregnancy- did you have to take off your wedding ring? I am about 7 months preg and my ring is starting to get more and more difficult to take off throughout each day. If you did have to lose your ring, what did you do with it? (wear it around your neck, put it away for a few months, etc)?

  • I always take mine off when I get further along. With my first pregnancy I didn't take it off and had to have it cut off. So I either just wear it around my neck or put in my jewelry box.

  • I had to take my rings off around 5 months. I started wearing them on a necklace but somewhere/somehow the necklace broke. I cried for like five hours when I came home and realized that my necklace was gone. We weren't able to find my rings :( I would reccomend putting them in a safe place!

  • I did have to take my rings off with my previous pregnancies (this is #4) and I didnt do anything with them. I would have put them on a necklace but I am not a big jewelry fan. The funny thing is that with this pregnancy I have had major swelling in my legs (that I didnt have with the others) and none in my hands?! SO my rings are still kinda loose, I am 7mo pregnant. I think its a little weird because I have already gained over 30 lbs LoL I thought for sure they would be feeling tight by now!!
